The Phil & Rose Quattrocchi Bursary

I praise God for my parents, Philip and Rose Quattrocchi, for their love and many good works. They had a special love for promoting the studying of Italian and Spanish and Art History, as well as the study of the Bible. Before a paid position existed, Dad was the representative of the Italian Consulate here in Kingston from about 1960 to 1980, helping many Italo-Canadian families. Indeed, they helped people from many ethnic backgrounds over the years.

The Dante Alighieri Society created this fund in memory of them. I am sure they both would be honoured to know that this bursary has been set in place to assist dedicated Queen's students in these disciplines, primarily Italian.

Dad was born in Sicily, Italy, and Mom's parents came from there too. Dad was a local businessman, a grocer, and Mom was his helpmate there as well as in other things. Dad was honoured for his good citizenship and works by many organizations and every level of government.
